  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees - cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl, add the egg, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg in a bowl and gradually add to the butter-sugar-egg mixture until combined then add in chopped apples & apple cider stir to combine.
  • Drop by LARGE spoonfuls onto cookie sheet - I use a scoop just about the size of an ice cream scooper- DON'T FEAR THE GIANT COOKIE!
  • Bake for 18-22 minutes - seriously - DON'T FEAR THE DARK COOKIE!
  • After the cookies cool drizzle - yep DRIZZLE on the cookies - my theory has always been the more icing the better but I learned with these the drizzle is the key!
